Blackwell, The Arts & Crafts House, Bowness-on-Windermere

  • A magical setting above Bowness, with far reaching panoramic views. The house is a beautiful survivor from the Arts and Crafts period. No expense was spared in its original construction and it's restoration has been undertaken very sympathetically. The cafe provides light lunches, cakes and refreshments. Bright and modern, with lovely staff. Our food was delicious and some tables allow you to take in that view whilst you eat. A wonderful day out.
  • The house itself is truly beautiful and will keep you occupied for a couple of hours or so. The cafe is great. Free parking. Beautiful fell and lake views and in summer you can take meals on outside terrace
  • A wonderful house, full of arts and crafts decor and furnishings, a shop with products by local artists, and a great restaurant. There are also special exhibitions. I've been to this house many times and never tire of it.
  • Beautiful house. Somehow grand, but at the same time, homely. Stunning views across the Lake and beyond. Interesting collections. Worth a visit.
  • This is a fantastic place. Great views and fantastic house we went in january and would love to go in summer
